A few comments/questions based on a quick going over of chapter 6...

Ashen Hides are mentioned but are not given a racial entry nor a region entry. They are not legal for the living campaign but are a playable Ssethric race (per CoH). Why were they not included?

The new Templar casting rule is better than the one originally posted on the forums, it still makes Ss'ressen Templars *FAR* less effective than any other Templar. As such, Ss'ressen Templars should have been granted something additional that other Templars do not get - otherwise, they are simply an inferior choice compared to any other race for a Templar.

Aura of the Fire Dragon should have a duration other than Instant (it is useless as Instant). I would guess Scene but being limited to 1/scene means it is effectively always on then once the Ss'ressen gets a speed 2 action.

Thickened with Age needs an additional benefit. Your AR is the same as Dragon Hide + Ss'ressen Scale Armor but it requires an additional talent with a very high requirement (Vigor 9). The only benefit this Talent really grants as written is an additional bonus to Fortitude.

A few completely non-official responses:

The Ashen Hide are included, in the Codex of Threats. They are based out of Canceri, which is not a playable region (regardless of race).

The new Templar casting rule is better than the one originally posted on the forums, it still makes Ss'ressen Templars *FAR* less effective than any other Templar. As such, Ss'ressen Templars should have been granted something additional that other Templars do not get - otherwise, they are simply an inferior choice compared to any other race for a Templar.

It has been stated before that not every character option is going to be equally powerful in Arcanis. If the Ssethrics do not have a well developed Templar tradition, then it is understandable that a Ssressen Templar would not have the same level of training, etc that other races receive. As a Ssressen, you do have access to a number of (quite cool) exclusive talents and paths which are not available to other races, so in my mind this is a non-issue.

Aura of the Fire Dragon should have a duration other than Instant (it is useless as Instant). I would guess Scene but being limited to 1/scene means it is effectively always on then once the Ss'ressen gets a speed 2 action.

Good catch, looks like this will need to be revisited.

Thickened with Age needs an additional benefit. Your AR is the same as Dragon Hide + Ss'ressen Scale Armor but it requires an additional talent with a very high requirement (Vigor 9). The only benefit this Talent really grants as written is an additional bonus to Fortitude.

I'm going to leave this for someone official to comment on, aside from saying that there is a fine line between having something be under-powered vs. over-powered. Not requiring armour is a benefit unto itself, in my mind.
